Quick Question: Below are two different functions, f(x) and g(x). What can be determined about their y-intercepts? f(x) = x + 4 x g(x) −1 8 1 0 2 −4 The function f(x) has a higher y-intercept. The function g(x) has a higher y-intercept. They both have the same y-intercept. The relationship between y-intercepts cannot be determined.

    the y-intercept is the value of y when x = 0, linear equation

    slope is the change in y divided by the change in x over the same period

    for 2 points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) slope is the gradient/steepness of the line

    in the sketch as you move from A to B what is the rate of change ? this is the slope.

    change in y with change in x as a ratio

    the direction is important when substituting the values.
